Keweenaw Flood Relief

Disaster Response

Last weekend the Houghton-Hancock area in the Keweenaw Peninsula received between 8 and 11 inches of rain in less than 12 hours. The hilly terrain exacerbated the drainage process and caused extreme flash flooding.

The best way to help now is through monetary donations. 


FORWARD is the name of the planning process through which we are discerning the God desired future for our life together. The FORWARD planning process was initiated by Compass in the winter of 2017. The FORWARD planning team was recruited by Compass in the spring of 2017 and given the task of discerning God’s future for Birmingham and Berkley First.
